The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is #GivingTuesday, a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the holiday season.  This year we will be raising money for the West Spring Musical, The Lion King and materials for the school-wide enrichment model (SEM). 

At West, we seek to prepare our scholars for the world beyond the classroom in many ways, including building their self-confidence and pride. For the past two years, over 50+ West Scholars have participated in a Spring Musical (The Wiz and Annie), directed entirely by staff volunteers. This spring, The Lion King promises to be our biggest and best production to date; you won't want to miss it!! We need your assistance in helping us fund the production, including costumes and set design. What a joy it is to watch our scholars shine! 

West is one of six DCPS funded SEM schools that provide advanced-level enrichment opportunities for ALL scholars. Small-group instruction, online learning, community partnerships, enrichment clusters and off-site excursions are all tools that our staff use to challenge students and foster their academic achievement and social development. Your giving will help support materials for our different clusters and off-site excursions in the DC area.
